Winner, Winner

Racing has been part of Motor Man’s life since he was a young boy, “souping up” go-kart engines. By the time he was in his late teens, he had begun building race engines for stock cars, drag cars and hydroplanes (race boats).

He has no idea how many races his engines have won through the years, and his engine customers have won several local short-track  and hydroplane championships.

Yes, I’m bragging on him…wives can (and should) do that from time to time often.

This past Saturday night, Danny, one of our customers, won the 2018 track championship at Langley Speedway, our local short track. For those of you familiar with stock car racing, Danny races in the Late Model Division. This is Danny’s sixth championship, three of those with Motor Man’s engines. Only one driver (now retired) has won more at seven.

There are lots of great folks involved in Danny’s racing. It’s a great team, and Motor Man and I are proud to be a part of it.

Congratulations to Danny and his team…including my Motor Man. Now, onto the 2019 season!
